Dimensional Autumn Apples Card

RRR Blog hop 11Dimensional Autumn Apples Card for Really Reasonable Ribbon

Hello, Ribbon Lovers!  I have been impatiently waiting to share today’s fun card with you.  I’ve made a dimensional autumn apples card featuring Really Reasonable Ribbon and Bo Bunny Apple Cider Cardstock.  The thing that makes this card special is that I made the bushel basket of apples round!  Yes, I did!  Take a peek:

RRR Blog hop 08It’s not as hard to do as you might think.  I began by creating a 5×7 side fold card. I scored the card front at 2 1/2″ and then folded it in, toward the card center.  Glue down the top and bottom edge to form a pocket.

A layer of Apple Cider green swirl paper was glued down to the card front.  I then fussy cut the basket, apples and leaves, added gold brads to the bushel basket staves and layered the apples and leaves on with dimensional foam.  A double layer of foam dots was added to the center of the back of the fussy cut basket, then I wadded up some paper towels and stuck them to the foam tabs.   I curved the basket by pushing the cut edges toward the center. The edges were glued, and I held them down until the glue set.  Voila!  Curved basket!  How fun is that?

Then I just added my gorgeous Tangerine Satin Swirls Ribbon to the inside panel of the card, as well as above the bushel of apples.  Here’s the inside of the card.

RRR Blog hop 06I decorated this pocket and tag with chipboard pieces from the collection.

Because the card is so dimensional, I had to put it in a box instead of an envelope.  So, I made one from the matching paper in the collection.

RRR Blog hop 01Here’s the whole ensemble.

RRR Blog hop 03I think this would make a nice hostess gift for all those holiday parties that are headed our way!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi Kathy, WOW! what a Thanksgiving blessing to receive this card in the mail. One to keep admiring an thanking for everyday. It is gorgeous. So much detail, and so much beauty of accents and color. Just perfect. Love apples, and this one keeps the juices flowing. ……Huggs

    Kathy…oh my word! This card is absolutely gorgeous. Too pretty to be called “a card”. It’s more like a work of art. I love how you’ve done the apple basket; from the gold brads to the dimensional-ness (is that a word?) of it. It’s fabulous. I also love your interior for the card. It’s such a shame that it has to be on the inside instead of showing all of the time. The box instead of an envelop is a wonderful idea. You’re right…this would be a wonderful little hostess gift that you could stick a gift card or something in as well. Ah…I can’t wait for the craft fairs and all of the wonderful aromas of the fall-ish foods cooking!!! Let the colorful autumn begin! <3 Candy
